People Help the People

Album: Birdy (2011)
Charted: 33
  • God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
    I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
    Those Hardfaced Queens of misadventure
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
    A Fiery throng of muted angels
    Giving love but getting nothing back

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    And nothing will drag you down
    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away

    God knows what is hiding in this world of little consequence
    Behind the tears, inside the lies
    A thousand slowly dying sunsets
    God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
    I guess the loneliness came knocking
    No one needs to be alone, oh save me

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned, all those good hearts away

    People help the people
    And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
    People help the people
    Nothing will drag you down
    Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
    I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
    That turned all those good hearts away Writer/s: Simon Aldred
